Group pledges 10m votes for Buhari



  1. The Coalition of Buhari/Osinbajo Movement (COBOM), on Thursday says it plans to mobilise 10 million Nigerians to vote towards re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming poll.

The Patron of the Group, retired Maj.-Gen. Garba Audu, gave the promise at the launch of COBOM’s Executives in Abuja on Thursday.

Audu said the group was working with other supporters to coordinate the re-election campaign of Buhari in all the 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the country.

He said the task would be easy considering the enviable records of the Buhari led administration.

“We are having an inauguration of COBOM, a coalition with grassroots; we have about 10 million people with their voters’ cards and they are ready to vote for Buhari come Feb.16.

“This is because they believe in his work, they have conviction in the progress of the country and they have the hope that Buhari will take us to the next level.

“This coalition is talking about 10 million votes; this coalition is going to give Buhari votes drawn from all the 774 LGAs,’’ he said.

Prof. Ibrahim Magudu, former Director-General, National Metallurgical Development Centre (NMDC), said the good work of the administration would earn it re-election.
` All spheres of the economy is feeling the impact of the administration,’’ he said.

He said Buhari has recorded successes in many sectors especially in the areas of security and agriculture.

The National Coordinator of COBOM, Mr Austin Gabriel, said that they came together in 2014 to support Buhari as Change Ambassadors (CAN)but later metamorphosed into COBOM.

Gabriel said COBOM which has structures in all the 36 states and FCT decided to support Buhari because of his patriotism in piloting the affairs of the nation.

“Nigeria used to be a country without direction, but today it is not so, therefore, as the election approaches, I looked at all the candidates and what they are bringing on board.

“I have no doubt that Buhari with his integrity will be able to steer the nation back to the path of glory, production after several years of suffering.

“So we gathered together to drum support for him because he deserves to come back after all the infrastructure development he brought in all states.

“We have been working behind the scene, so this is the first time we are coming out to inaugurate our executives in all the states to re-elect Buhari and Osinbajo,’’ he said.
